2019 Honda Insight Plant in Indiana

2019 Honda Insight

 

Honda has made a major investment in its Indiana and Ohio production facilities. Part of that investment includes launching the production of the all-new 2019 Honda Insight in Indiana. The Honda Insight is powered by a two-motor hybrid powertrain that generates 151 horsepower and 197 lb-ft of torque.

What & Where

A $61.5 million investment aims to add to Honda’s electrified vehicle portfolio. The Honda Insight will be produced exclusively at the Greensburg, Indiana production facility. Three Ohio facilities will produce powertrain parts that make the Insight into an efficient sedan drivers are sure to love.

$32.5 million of the investment is going towards producing the all-new Honda Insight. A new 19,200-sq ft. building expansion will be home to assembly of the Insight’s front end. Other processes directed to the 2019 Insight include high-voltage wiring and the power control system.

When

The 2019 Honda Insight will land in dealership showrooms this summer. It will slot between the Civic and Accord with seating for five. The Honda Sensing® safety suite comes standard on all models. The Insight marks the fifth electrified Honda model launched in the past 18 months.

With the launch of the Honda Insight, the manufacturer is on track to achieve its goal of electrified vehicles making up more than half of its sales by 2030. Here at Sunny King Honda, we’re excited to see what Honda’s electrified future will bring to the industry.

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is the Most Efficient Hybrid Car

The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid will be the most efficient hybrid in the midsize sedan category

After skipping the 2016 model year, the Accord Hybrid is back—and in style. Based on its EPA-estimated fuel economy, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is now the most efficient midsize hybrid sedan on the market, with ratings of 49 mpg city, 47 mpg highway, and 48 mpg combined.

These values are about 4% higher than those of the outgoing model, which Honda claims was gained by totally re-engineering the powertrain; that includes revising the 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine and introducing new electric motors along with a lithium-ion battery pack.

The Accord Hybrid also features a new aluminum hood, but you wouldn’t be able to tell without closely peering at it. In fact, the hybrid is just like the conventional Accord in almost every way, save for the “EV Mode” button next to the center console.

Given that the Accord is already one of our most popular models at Sunny King Honda, we certainly have nothing to complain about the incredibly efficient Accord Hybrid!
